Papertrey June Blog Hop...



Good evening everyone. Well it is that time of month again. Time sure is flying by anymore. Since this month we were to select a color combo that we really liked. There is so many that it is so hard to choose. I was watching the news the other night and the achor (female) was wearing a jacket the was lime green with a grey print. I immediately thought of Simply Chartruese and Smokey Shadow. So that is the combination I chose to use.
I received the weekly newsletter from SCS this week with this treat box so I made one with the color combo I chose to use. I started with Simply Chartruese to make the base and distressed it with Smokey shadow. The above picture shows the box open.


The band is Simply Chartruese stamped with images from Honey Bees with Simply Chartruese and Snow White. Then stamped the larger bee and popped it up on the band. Tied a Snow White Satin ribbon around the whole box and took a Bridal flower from Michael's and used a dark grey copic marker to color it. I used some Lemon Tart buttons tied with button twine.
This is a picture with the box fully closed.
Have fun blog hopping tonight. I know I am excited to see what all of your color combos are and going to take plenty of notes.
Thanks for stopping by,
Liz
